We were considering a home purchase in the Chautauqua Lake area and had a handful of homes that we wished to see. Richard had previously set up a search protocol for us. He arranged to meet with us on a Saturday (we are out of state) to review our search criteria and time line as well as visit the homes on our list. We were able to narrow our focus and will seriously pursue the search later this year with his assistance.Karen Weikart
